Jacaranda time and NOT the radio station...


These messages tied to Jacaranda trees on Barry Hertzog avenue caught my attention.

 
We spend too much time speeding through our days, so I decided to stop!
And smell the Jacaranda

Pretoria is meant to be "Jacaranda City"...but our suburb has its fair share 

We also have Poinsettia, which, although poisonous,are pretty

My knowledge of the local flora is not good, but this flower did catch my attention  

But my "hike" through the streets of Linden were to capture these images... 
  
 
 

If you look carefully, the "blob" on the right hand side is actually a bee... 

Jacaranda are podcast? 

Time for pollenation  

The colours in the Highveld sunshine were spectacular 

The streets and avenues take on a mantle of purple
 
When the flowers drop everything becomes covered in a carpet of purple 

and red... 

Five Agapanthus in a row...  

A Bottlebrush... 

and a paint brush... 

We live in a tough suburb!
